Greg Street, London

Date: 10th March 2014

Subject: volunteer recommendation letter

Respected Mr. Jackson

I, Leslie Jobs am writing this letter to you to recommend a volunteer for your upcoming major state event.  I recommend Mr. Paul Anderson for the Marathon Race event to be held in London which is being organized by your reputed event organizer company.  Mr. Anderson is a fresh graduate from Birmingham University and is looking for a fresh opportunity to get exposure.

I am writing this letter in the capacity of Mr. Anderson’s former College professor. I have known him for the last 3 years as I used to teach him English. Mr. Anderson was the head of the event organizing department of the college and has always been excellent at managerial skills, organization skills and possesses exceptional leadership qualities. I am sure that he will perform well at whatever duty that is given to him at the Marathon event.

I can take full responsibility for Mr. Anderson’s actions and performance and if you need any more information, you can contact me at 4794795935.

Thanking you,

Leslie Jobs
