GASP is a Surrey based charity providing hands-on courses in basic motor
mechanics and practical engineering for young people. Operating from our purposebuilt motor vehicle workshop, GASP Evening sessions are delivered to 13 – 19 year

develop practical skills and knowledge about motor engineering, as well as
developing key personal attributes such as team working and problem solving.

The Evening sessions run during the school term on a Monday, Wednesday and
Thursday, from 7-9pm. The young people may stay for a term or a year (or longer!).
The sessions are run on an informal but safe basis with the emphasis on fun and
enjoyment.
