There are many families that apart from giving their present have enjoyed a wide agenda of activities organised in the stand that have been a great success.
This action has been developed with the help of volunteers and personal of the transport company, and the cooperation of some NGOs of the city, that delivered the toys to the disfavored families in Granada, and help Wise Men deliver all the toys to the children of the city. This non-profit associations are Integración para la Vida (INPAVI), Ciudad de los Niños, Edicoma, Fundación Escuela de Solidaridad and Granabip.
The bus stayed at the Parada de la Ilusión, located at Paseo del Salón, from Friday 13 December until today 3 January, uninterrupted from 11:00 to 21:00 hours. In these 22 days more than 3.000 people have joined magic bus, and left a present or join the activities made in the stand of Rober, as a nowelty this year. These activities of the Magic bus have been organised thanks to the cooperation of some NGOs beneficiary of the toys, and included a stilts workshop by Fundación Escuela de Solidaridad, a magic workshop by Edicoma, face painting and ballon twisting by Inpavi and face painting by Granabip.
The last week the Magic Bus has a Royal Postman, a badge workshop and a photocall. Also some entities of the grenadian society, specially sports ones, wanted to take part of Magic Bus this year. Among them we can find Fundación CB Granada that visited the bus with some of the players of Coviran team, Carlos Corts, Manu Rodríguez and Diego Kapelan were there and left some toys and backpacks ending their year in a solidarity way, delivering illusion between the smaller ones. And this way have begun the year the full team ofHafesa RACA, whose players have been to the Magic Bus full of presents to help Wise Men this Christmas.
