Volunteer Covering Letter Example
Ms Jane Brown
101 Any Road
Mr John Smith
Dear Mr Smith
Application for voluntary work
I am interested in volunteering within your organisation and enclose my CV for your consideration.
I understand that you regularly need volunteers to drive and arrange activities for elderly people in the community. As I am a reliable, friendly and patient person, I believe that I would enjoy these duties and would benefit your organisation by becoming a volunteer.
I have a stable employment record in the retail sector but, more importantly, have spent a significant amount of time over the last year caring for my grandmother. This has given me an appreciation of the needs and wishes of elderly people who are not able to rely upon the family.
I am keen to undertake any training that you may feel necessary to undertake the role and would be delighted to come to your offices to discuss my suitability. I am able to work flexible hours and feel sure that the work would be very rewarding.
Please feel free to contact me on either of the contact phone numbers specified on my CV.
Thank you for your time.
We hope that our cover letter example is helpful for you.
