It is the highest collection of the solidarity festival organized by the Gmp Foundation, in its nine years of life, a total of 53,382 euros, which will allow financing not only a Fundown project - as originally planned - but two initiatives: the 'My Life' project, to improve the quality of life and autonomy of people with Down Syndrome in Murcia and another action aimed at inclusion through new technologies.

The IX International Festival of Solidarity Magic of Murcia 'Grandes Illusions' took place last March in Murcia and brought to the city great magicians and illusionists who acted in the Romea Theater and the Circus Theater, as well as in different squares of the city.

"Illusion, devotion, affection and generosity are the four pillars on which this festival stands which allocates 100% of its proceeds to improve the lives of people with intellectual disabilities," said the mayor, who thanked the GMP Foundation for its " disinterested commitment with Murcian society "and" to the companies of the Region that sponsor this event, whose X edition I am sure will be memorable and will come full of surprises ".
