"If you'd like to stand with us to help wipe out this year's deficit of £150k, you can give on line..."
Responding to news of the deficit, Twitter user Emma Sivyer said: "Wow - that's a big hole to fill. Why the deficit?".

Some of the biggest names in the Christian music industry will take to the stage when the second leg of the Big Church Day Out 2018 gets underway this weekend.
Kari Jobe, Newworldson, Matt Redman and Martin Smith will be among those taking to the stage at Capesthorne Hall near Macclesfield in Cheshire.
Fellow Twitter user, James Stevens said: "An extra £5 on everyone's ticket would have massively reduced the deficit, but it would also reduce affordability for many."
