Sponsored Story for the Chauncy Maples Trust

The Chauncy Maples Trust is renovating the ship Chauncy Maples as a mobile primary healthcare centre that will travel Lake Malawi, providing care to needy, inaccessible lakeside Malawians. To raise money, I am writing a Sponsored Story. Please help! In order to take part, please contribute an idea for the story with your donation.

Ideas contributed so far:

- How about including a wacky, wild-haired, well-meaning wise woman who is very accident prone!... and make it a romance!

- an ex police man driving instructer who is a stalker etc

- Why don't we write the story for you with each donor adding the next sentence. "It was 1899 and my first day at work."

- maybe it would be fitting to set story on a lake boat. Some kind of mystery, a missing person or object.

- the name Horatio

- I suggest a drunk hippo pirate. I agree that it could take a nautical theme. Message in a bottle?

- "Look! You can see Funwe Hill ..."

a mathematical touch, perhaps the word trigonometry or pi 

- a bird and a horse

- can you give a walk-on part to a jolly accountant?!

- A clever, hard-working 14 year old school boy named Nelson, whose potential is yet to be discovered...

- a hidden secret in the bottom of the lake, and its repurcussions...

- I suggest that the artist who painted the picture for the Malawi stamp is involved in the mystery..they were there....

- I wonder if there are pirates on Lake Malawi and if they could somehow come into the story...

- In keeping with the boat's Scottish heritage perhaps you could include bagpipes in your story?

- bottle of ginger beer and a baobab tree

- a lapse pad, madagascar (or some crazy person miming the film plot) and a rabbit with a hard life are a must...

- Russell and Bromley shoes, pizza delivery, a visit to a sci-fi convention.

- 'Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in.'

- three evil accountants.

- some kind of baked product

- sandblaster, fish eagle and crocodile
