TERMINALLY-ILL cancer patient Ann-Marie Noble has ticked off a sweet item on her “bucket list” after taking part in souffle and truffle-making sessions.

The Mail previously told how the 31-year-old RAF flight lieutenant had the sweet session on her list, along with a dream to meet Terry Wogan and 28 other aspirations to enjoy in what little time she has left.

Ann-Marie, who is based at RAF Marham in Norfolk, but has family in West View Road, Hartlepool, said: “It was really good. I didn’t think of it as something on my bucket list, it was just a nice thing to do.”

Ann-Marie is also looking forward to completing another item on the list when she visits Last Night of the Proms in Hyde Park with childhood friend Judith Walker on September 7.

She is recovering from a recent dose of chemotherapy and is concentrating on getting well enough to enjoy more fun events.“I’m having a break from the chemotherapy until later this month and just concentrating on getting myself better,” she said.

Further offers of gifts for Ann-Marie are flooding in, including from Finlay’s Newsagent in Seaton Carew, who are offering her a trip in a Ferrari, and national charity Bike Tours for the Wounded, which wants to offer her a zip wire ride.

The Mail has told how Ann-Marie was diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer in April, having previously been given the all-clear last October. A fund to help her cope with travel insurance costs to help fulfil her list is at www. gofundme.com/338gz8
