How do I appeal a Tribunal PIP Decision?

Hey.. I'm new to this forum and really need some advice. 

Please could someone tell me how I appeal to the Tribunal pip decision? I've rang the tribunal today and was advised to write a letter asking for the "statement of reasons, (SOR)" 
I have not been sent anything other than a letter saying I was not entitled to it. I scored 6 on daily living and 4 points on the mobility. 
When I have looked through my documentation I've been awarded less on some daily living. When the advice and information given says they go with the highest points when both situations apply. 

Any help will be much appreciated. I'm not sure what to write in the letter to request the SOR? Would I need to give a reason to why I'm requesting the SOR? 

Thank you
