Model Answer 1:
Dear Mr Brown,
I have been working as a volunteer in your organisation ‘Help and Hope’ for about a year and I am proud to be a part of a very noble cause. I regret to inform you that I no longer can be a part of it due to my higher studies. I am hoping that you would consider my cousin Sebastian for the work.
I joined your organisation a year ago as I was deeply moved by your initiatives to fight for the less privileged children. Since then, I have been a part of your team. I primarily worked in the field and visited slum areas to collect data. I have met many bright children during my trip and many of them are still in touch with me. I regret that I will have to move to New Zealand next November to pursue my post graduation and can no longer work for your organisation.
However, I am happy to inform you that my cousin Sebastian can be my replacement for the work. He is very enthusiastic to help those children and he is a benevolent and outgoing person. He has already shown interest in the work. I have given him your number and he will contact you soon.
I want to thank you for the opportunity you gave me and I hope you will find my cousin a fitting person for the job.
