Former Warrington Wolves forward Gary Chambers has taken part in a 500-mile non-stop cycle, held to honour the daughter of an ex-police officer.

Chambers, a one-club man who featured for the Wire 210 times over the course of 11 years, raised thousands of pounds for Reverse Rett alongside charity founder Andy Stevenson and Neil Fowler, who served as a copper in the town in the 1990s, with the mammoth cycle.

The challenge, held to mark the fifth anniversary of charity trustee Neil’s seven-year-old daughter Ciara being diagnosed with Rett syndrome, encompassed 12 laps of a 40-mile loop on the Wirral.
