Some pictures from Jamie's experiences so far.

Jamie Tangles was told that she had metastatic breast cancer last month, having originally fought off the disease in 2013.

But rather than let it dominate her future, she decided to make the most of her time left by creating a bucket list.

After sharing her story on social media she has already done some of the things she had only dreamed of, including riding in supercars.

Miss Tangles said: “I have been shocked and overwhelmed by the amazing response from the people of Kettering.

“On July 24 I get to ride on the back of a Harley [Davidson], a dream of mine since I was five and saw a Harley for the first time.

“It’s all go, and it’s amazing that people will help me make these memories for me, my parents and especially my kids.”

Items on her bucket list include seeing Paris, taking a helicopter flight, meeting a celebrity and being a bridesmaid.

One man who has helped Jamie achieve some of her wishes is Rob Hudson, managing director of Eureka Produce in Wellingborough.

He helped Jamie ride in a number of supercars including a Porsche, Aston Martin, McLaren, Lamborghini and a Ferrari, as well as take a trip in a police car.

He said: “I just saw her post on Facebook and that she had terminal cancer and a bucket list.

“It’s just nice to give something back and I’m hoping to have another surprise lined up soon but I can’t divulge too much.

“She’s dealing with the situation very bravely and taking it head on.

“She’s chosen to make it public and the response she’s had has been amazing.”
