Woman launches crowdfunder for her terminally ill mother
Angie Longmate, 58, wants to see Ed Sheeran in concert and go rally driving.
A woman whose mother was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help her tick items off her bucket list.
Angie Longmate wants to see Ed Sheeran in concert, visit the Pyrenees and go rally driving - despite having a revoked licence.
Her daughter Georgina Muirhead said she wants to raise funds to pack in a lifetime of memories in the short time the family have left together.
Mrs Longmate, 58, a care home worker from Strontian on the Ardnamurchan peninsula in the west Highlands, has five granddaughters.
She was visiting Mrs Muirhead in Nottinghamshire when she fell ill in February.
Mrs Longmate, a mother-of-two, was thought to be having a stroke and was taken to King's Mill Hospital in Mansfield. A CT scan revealed a shadow mass on the brain.
A week later she was transferred to Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham where she underwent brain surgery. Medics were unable to remove the whole tumour.
Mrs Longmate, who has been married to her husband Gordon for 41 years, is to start radiotherapy and chemotherapy to try to keep the tumour at bay but the family has been told there will come a point where treatment is no longer viable.
In response, Mrs Muirhead asked her mother for a list of things she wants to do before she dies.
Mrs Longmate said: "I don't think the reality of what's happening has sunk in yet. It feels like a dream.
"I had some headaches recently but I just thought they were migraines and connected to the the stress of work. I had started doing night shifts and just put it down to adjusting to the stress of work.
"I compiled the list of things I want to do because it would be nice to leave some happy memories behind for everyone else and to do things I have never had a chance to do."

Mrs Longmate added: "It feels a bit like I've been given a deadline to do everything I want to do.
"My husband Gordon and I are a very close couple and we had been planning our retirement and then all of a sudden this has happened.
"I really want to go back to Italy and just spend time with Gordon and all of my family. I've been amazed at the generosity of people on the GoFundMe page. The kindness of strangers really has been wonderful".
