Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

 I am writing to seek your help in retrieving my gym bag which I forgot to take on Friday. I have been informed that the gym will remain closed the entire week. Unfortunately, I cannot wait that long to have my bag back.

My name is Rajeev Meher and I have been a gold member of your club facilities for the past five years. This bag contains valuable items like my wallet, office desk keys and my credit card. Without them, I will face a tough time paying the bills and accessing my important office documents at work.

It is a navy blue coloured air bag which has two zipped compartments. It also has my initials inscribed on them R.M. Hopefully you will have no difficulty finding it because I left it in my locker.

I would sincerely appreciate it if you could have someone deliver it to my home address at your earliest convenience. If that is not possible, I can send someone from my place to come to pick it up. I hope you will consider my request seriously and do the needful.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Rajeev Meher

    Dear Mr. Sam,
    I am writing this letter to inform you that I forgot my gym bag yesterday in the open locker area.
    Let me introduce myself. I have been a member of your gym for last 2 years and my membership number is X301. As you may know, I always come directly from my office, therefore my gym bad has some important office documents and my cabin keys which I need urgently.
    My gym bag is a black Adidas of round shape and medium size. It has a name slip with all my details. If you open the bag, it will have some documents, a gym towel, my headphones and an apple.
    Could I ask if it would be possible for you to take the bag into your possession so that it is not lost in the renovations? If you would let me know the time and place from where I can pick my bag that would be highly appreciated. Finally, please throw the apple from the bag otherwise it will spoil everything in it.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours truly
    Rajinder Sandhu

    Hello Manager
    I am a member of your gym having membership number #12345. I am writing to you to inform you about a situation which has arisen on Friday. I mistakenly forgot my gym bag in one of the lockers located inside the ladies locker room. I think the locker number was 32 and it was the top row. The bag is black colour, single gym section and has a ‘wildcraft’ logo on it.
    My bag contains very important documents in it as I also forget my wallet in it. It has my credit card and other important identity cards which I would require during the week. I just today received an email from the gym about the renovation process and closure of the gym during the next week.
    Therefore, I am hoping if I can get my bag back as soon as possible. Can you please keep it with you and let me know the time suitable for me to come and pick it up from the gym or from your place.
