    I think in the first box you list the PIP activities / descriptors that you disagree with and what descriptors you think you should have been awarded.
    For example
     "Activity Mobility 2: I disagree that I can walk 50 metres. I can only walk 20 metres.
    Activity Daily living 1 Preparing  and cooking a simple meal: I disagree that I can prepare a simple meal using an aid or appliance. I need assistance to prepare a meal'  and so on. 

    or if there isn't enough room just:
    Activity Mobility 2: I can only walk 20 metres. 
    Activity Daily living 1 I need assistance to prepare a meal'

    Then. as you say, in the second box you put why you disagree.

    Hi as advised above just put simple line about which descriptors you disagree with then more in the explanation.

    Are there any guidance notes on how to complete the form that you can refer to
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can't help I will

    It would suffice to put something along the lines of “I do not think the points awarded for activities x, y and z are reflect the information in my PIP 2 nor my additional evidence.” 

    The detail can be added once the appeal has been lodged. As long as your appeal doesn’t say “I am appealing because you’re wrong” then you’ll be fine.
