Dear Mr Ndoye
I write to convey thanks and profound gratitude to you for the good work you have done to popularize the Roots International Festival 2014 among your friends and colleagues and community.
I regret to inform you that due to budgetary constraints we are unable to pay for the air passage and other expenses of the proposed invitees.
While wishing you good luck in your endeavours, please accept the assurances of my highest esteem.
Roots Coordinating Committee
