Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in volunteering at your hospital. I would like to express my willingness to work at the hospital in my free time.

I am currently pursuing Masters in Finance and as part of my curriculum I need to enroll for an internship program for two months with an organisation. Since I have always been interested in taking care of the sick, I thought I would pursue this internship program in a hospital. Hence, I am applying for this position. I am in the last semester of my course. Our academic session will be closing by end of this month and I shall be available to join the hospital on 1st June, 2022 for a period of 2 months.

As a volunteer, I can take care of the patients, spend time with them, make their bed and help them eat, use washroom or bathe. My grandmother had been bed ridden for two years before she died last year. So, I am used to doing these sorts of jobs.

I request you to kindly consider my candidature and allow me to contribute my bit.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Alexia Ferguson
