Twinning Visit Grant
The Town Council, encourage residents of Wellingborough to take advantage of these twinned relationships and visit one or both of these twinned towns.
To enable our young residents to make these visits the town council will provide £50 per young person for one trip to either of the twinned towns.
For the purposes of this grant a young person is defined as under 18 or a full-time student.
This grant funding is provided to facilitate travel and accommodation and to generally ease the financial burden and enable the individual to benefit from this unique twinned relationship.
On approval of the grant, the funding will be paid to the applicant on receipt of travel or hotel receipts to support the funding of your trip.
On completion of the trip you agree to provide the town council with evidence of the trip, which the town council is able to use on its website and social media to promote the scheme.
