Your local hospital has advertised for people to do unpaid work helping at the hospital. You would like to do some work at the hospital in your free time.
Write a letter to the hospital. In your letter
- Explain why you would like to do unpaid work at the hospital
- Say what type of unpaid work you would be able to do
- Give details of when you would be available for this work
Dear Sir or Madam,
Further to your advertisement in the Small Town Times regarding voluntary work at your hospital, I would like to express my interest.
I am a resident of Small Town and my children and grandchildren were delivered at your hospital. The hospital employees have always taken good care of my family when they were ill and I would like to somehow give back the support I have received by offering my services. I have recently retired so I would like to use my spare time to help my local community.
I have worked as an Office Administrator for thirty five years, therefore, I believe it would be ideal for me to assist with any office duties such as filing, answering the phone, and filling in forms for patients.
I am available for work in the mornings from 7am until 2pm from Monday to Friday. Unfortunately, I am not available in the afternoons or at weekends.
I look forward to hearing from you.
