Band 8 letter sample

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am writing to inform you that I want to terminate my club membership by the end of this month. I have been a member of FitnessFirst Club since the past year.

I have a premier membership of the club with access to all of the branches in Dubai. My initial one-time joining fee was AED. 200. The monthly payment of AED. 300 is automatically debited from my credit card at the beginning of each month.

I have immensely benefited from the club’s plethora of facilities such as weight training machines, tennis courts, soccer fields and so on. In addition, my weight-loss program was successful and I have lost around 10 kg ever since I had joined.

However, I would like to discontinue my membership as I will be relocating soon to Vancouver, Canada. My employer is placing me to an office there and hence I have to move out of town with my family.

In the meantime, please do let me know if you need any additional information and have any concerns.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr. Shetty,

I am writing to inform you that I will have to discontinue my membership. For the past 1 year, I have been a regular visitor of this club and I hold a Silver Card. I had paid in advance the annual fee of Rs. 25,000 and security deposit of Rs. 30,000 as per your club’s payment policy.

I must say that the club facilities offered are top-notch; also, the staff here is very helpful. I enjoyed playing tennis and swimming with my friends and the yoga sessions conducted by Mr. Acharya helped me with my knee problem. Thank you so much for your services. I will definitely recommend this clubhouse to my friends and relatives.

Sadly, I have to cancel the membership as I am moving to another city due to an office transfer. Nevertheless, I will visit this city often to meet my friends, and during my visit, I will drop in for sure to use the hourly paid services offered at the club.

I request you to kindly help me with the cancellation process and let me know how I can get the deposit amount back.

Yours sincerely,

Mithali Mohta
