– what can you do as a volunteer
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in regard to unpaid work at old peoples’ home that you have advertised in the local newspaper.
I am John, and I am currently studying at Oxford University. I have plenty of free time after my college classes. Therefore, I want to utilise this time in the most effective by helping old people and spending time with them.
I have a good knowledge of computer, other electronic gadgets, and the internet. Apart from this, I also worked as a warden boy for six months in a local hospital and there, I had learned about medication from senior staff.
I can teach old people how to use modern gadget so that they can stay connected with their families when they feel lonely. Also, I can give medicine to them as I have worked in a hospital.
I am looking forward to your reply.
