Sample Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am very sorry to inform you that I no longer can work in your organization, ‘Save Environment’ Movement. My name is Ben Thomson and I have been working as an event organizer and my registration number is N3459.

My main responsibility is to organize events in order to create awareness among the locals of our community. And also, I am designing posters for these events and sometimes conduct small sessions on how to keep our neighborhood clean and healthy. In addition to this, I organize media coverage by contacting media reporters.

Unfortunately, I am not able to continue my voluntary job due to my exams is at my door. The exam is very crucial for my life. I need to achieve a good grade at any cost. For that, I have to study almost 24/7. I have no time for other stuffs. So, I have decided to step down my volunteer activities and take a backseat to my own life.

I know you will face problems when I leave, but I can recommend my brother for the vacancy as I have full confident that he can manage all the responsibilities effectively and efficiently.

I would like thank you for your support during my working period. Hope you can understand my condition and work with the replacement that I have suggested for the post.

With best regards,
Ben Thomson
