Following on from the success of car garage Auto22 in Gravesend a second branch has been opened in Kent.

Auto22 is a social enterprise that offers internships for young people who may have been in difficult situations.

It opened its first garage in Gravesend in 2010 and has now spread to Paddock Wood.

Managing director Richard Mayhew said: “The success of the first Auto22 garage proves that there is a real opportunity across a number of sectors to develop a network of businesses throughout the UK that can give young people a future.”
