Testimonial

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Krunch staff for the brilliant DJ workshop they did for us. Not only did they behave in a very courteous manner but the interaction they displayed with our service users, some of whom have very complex needs, was nothing short of amazing. Everyone who took part in the sessions really enjoyed themselves, the feedback was very positive but you only had to see the smiles on everyone’s faces to know that.
