Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am writing you from the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures of the University of Edinburgh, where I am a student organizer. As you may know, the university organizes many events related to literature and the different cultures in our school. These events are usually theatrical plays or lectures given by foreign professors from other universities. Nevertheless, the place where we usually perform these types of events is being reformed, so we need to raise the necessary funds to rent a considerably large space for the following university events.
To do this, we are planning to hold a fair in George Square in April in order so that we can finance our project. There will be food and second-hand books stalls set up by the students. There will also be a mini concert thanks to the musicians of the Reid School of Music that have also offered their help. This event is not only going to help us to find a considerably large space, but also to encourage students to do something different from what they are used to.
In order to attract more people to our fair, we have thought to make a raffle with price of a trip to Normandy (France) where the winner will visit the most famous places where French writers, such as Victor Hugo, were inspired. We are therefore hoping that you might be able to help us by paying for this trip. Naturally, we would be delighted to promote you as our key sponsor.
If sponsorship were possible, I would be content to arrange a meeting at any time or place that was convenient for you.
Thank you for your attention.
Alberto Romero Sánchez
