Goldie's TV challenge.

A CHILDREN'S charity was celebrating today after Midland music star Goldie named them as his cause ahead of his appearance on Channel 4's The Games 2006.

The drum'n'bass legend from Walsall is hoping to raise thousands for Barnardo's as he competes against Jade Jones, Radio 1's JK, MC Plat'num and ex-Blue Peter presenter and Chief Scout Peter Duncan.

Goldie, who has spent a gruelling three months in intensive training with sporting experts, will take compete in water-skiing, speed skating, kendo and archery.

The TV show runs between March 17 and 25 and features a series of live challenges.

The celebrity athlete with the most points at the end of the week will take the title and will also gain the largest amount for their chosen charity. Previous winners have raised as much as pounds 40,000.

Barnardo's works with 120,000 children, young people and their families in more than 370 specialised projects in local communities across the UK.

This includes work with children affected by today's most urgent issues: poverty, homelessness, disability, bereavement and abuse.
