Model Answer 1:

Dear Mr Peter,

Three days ago I went to your Gold Body Gym and forgot the bag that I placed in cupboard 547. I was ill for the last two days and when I  went to the gym yesterday I was notified that the gym would be closed for a week. I need my bag urgently and I am hoping you will allow me to fetch my bag from the gym.

I have been a member of your gymnasium since 2018 and my membership number is 4580. The allocated cabinet that I use regularly is 547. I placed my bag in that closet and forgot it as I hurried to return home on 22nd March 2020. Due to my sickness, I was absent for the next two days and could not retrieve my bag.

In relation to the specifics of the bag, it is a brown colour office bag that has my laptop, a few official documents, my credit card and a notebook in it. The bag has three zippers and a flexible handle.

Now that I heard that your gym would be closed for at least a week for renovation work, I am a bit worried. As a solution, and because I really need the bag, I am hoping that you would permit me to collect it from the gym sometime tomorrow.

Thank you for giving the matter your attention and I hope to hear your reply soon.

Yours sincerely,

Alex Carey

Model Answer 2:

Dear Mr Andrew,

I am a regular member of your True Fitness Gym in the West Delhi branch. I went to the gym last Friday, as usual, however, I was in a bit hurry for an official meeting and I forgot my bag in cupboard 167. Today I learned that the gymnasium will be closed for a week but I need the bag urgently. I am hoping that you would arrange a way to hand over the bag to me.

My access card number is 99876 and I have been a member since the beginning of 2017. The authority has announced that the gym will be closed for renovation work but I need my bag along with its content urgently. My bag is black and has three zippers, one in the middle and two on the sides. It has my official laptop and wallet which includes my driving license and credit cards along with some cash. I would need them before I go to the office tomorrow morning.

I would request you to kindly instruct your ward boy to assist me in getting the bag from the cupboard when I come to the gym tomorrow morning. I understand the inconvenience this might cause you, and I would really appreciate your help.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Gaurav Verma
