My name is Lisa Nixon and I am the Account Manager for a company called Best Ltd.
We have just recently acquired a new government funded contract called The Mandatory Work Activity Program.
The aim of this program is to provide people claiming job seekers allowance with a free 4 week work placement with community organisations such as yourselves.
I am contacting you today to see if you would be interested in working together and providing placement opportunities for our customers.
Alternatively if you know of anyone who may need people to help on community projects.
Our contract covers all of Yorkshire and the Humber.
I have attached a leaflet for your information and would be more than happy to discuss the details further either via email, telephone or face to face.
Please contact me should you wish to discuss it.

Hopefully I will speak to you soon.
