Sample Invitation Letter to a Welsh Government Minister for an Event

In a previous article, we offered tips on how to successfully invite a Minister or Deputy Minister to an event. To increase the chance of success, a clear and well-written letter of invitation is crucial. Therefore, see below a letter template that offers you the best chances of success:


Dear [Minister’s Name],

I am writing on behalf of [Charity Name], a poverty alleviation charity in Wales. We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of our latest report on poverty reduction efforts. The event is set to take place on 1st August at the Pierhead building in Cardiff Bay, and we would be honoured to have you as our special guest for the occasion.

As you are aware, poverty is a complex issue that requires the cooperation and support of government officials and organisations alike. We believe that your presence at the report launch would send a strong message of solidarity and support to our efforts to combat poverty in Wales.

We would like to specifically request that you consider making a short speech at the event, sharing your thoughts on poverty reduction strategies and highlighting the importance of collaboration between government and civil society organisations. However, we understand that your busy schedule may not allow for this and would be grateful for your attendance alone.

The report we are launching represents months of research and collaboration between various stakeholders, and we believe it will provide valuable insights into the state of poverty in Wales and the ways in which we can work together to address this pressing issue.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this important occasion and look forward to hearing from you soon. Please let us know if you require any further information or have any questions about the event.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


[Your Name]

[Charity Name]
