If you are looking to apply for a Volunteer position for a charity or similar environment then you will need to be able to show that you have done some volunteering work before or explain the reasons why you are now looking for a volunteering position.
There are many reasons why people volunteer and with many organisations, without volunteers they would literally have to close their doors, this can be especially true of smaller organisations that perhaps offer days out and are quiet some of the time.
If you are looking for help with typing your email, please see the below example that you can use as guide.

Subject: Application for a position of Volunteer
Body of message:
Dear Name or Sir/Madam,
Please find attached my CV as I would be very interested in working for your organisation on a volunteer basis.
I have been working as a volunteer on and off for many years and I enjoy being able to provide a service for other people to continue to enjoy as I feel that this is very important. I have volunteered at a local train station for small trains for family days out which was very enjoyable and I have also volunteered at a local community centre and the local church.
I enjoy dealing with other people and working with others. I like to be able to share my experiences with others as they need it and feel that this is a good way of making people enjoy a day out.
My CV details my experiences and skills from also paid employment. Should you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them for you. I would be available to volunteer during the times you have specified in your advert.
Thank you for taking the time to read my email and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
