A FORMER Warrington Wolves forward will be eating no solid foods this month to raise funds and awareness for charity.

Gary Chambers, who made 210 appearances for the Wire over 11 seasons before retiring in 2000, will be taking on the challenge in aid of Reverse Rett alongside the organisation’s founder Andy Stevenson.

Warrington Guardian:

October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month, with the charity boss’ daughter and step-daughter both suffering from the rare neurological disorder.

Beth and Amber can no longer eat solid food as a result of their condition.

Andy, formerly of Burtonwood, said: “October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month, and this year I wanted to do something a bit different to highlight what happens to people with Rett syndrome as they get older.

“My girls Amber and Beth can no longer eat solid food.

“Everything now has to be blended or pureed, so for October myself and Gary are going to be eating the same way as them.”

Warrington Guardian:

The pair are hoping to raise £2,000 for the charity, of which Chambers is an ambassador, through their efforts.
