Subject: Help me!!
Dear Valued colleague,
I’m terribly sorry to bother you with my shortcomings. I really need your help! As I am new to the organisation I have no idea on the protocol with devising organisational documents.
Please could you let me know the following:
• Once I’ve drafted a document if I notice there are gaps in the information who can I ask for additional material?
• Who do I need to send the final draft to for approval?
• What are the organisational requirements with regards to:
? Color scheme?
? Company logo?
? House styles?
? Templates?
• Where can I find manuals to help me with the document design?
• How should I name and store the document once I’ve finished it?
Thank you in anticipation of your response.
Kind Regards
William Warburton

From personal experience you know that on a good day over $1000 can be made from such a charity sausage sizzle.
Many organisations apply each year to Bunnies to conduct charity sausage sizzles and it is a requirement that a formal application be made to Bunnies, requesting a an opportunity to do so.
Where possible your application letter and associated documents should adhere to your organisational style guides . You need to create the following documents for the event:
