Charlie Waller Institute
The Charlie Waller Institute (CWI) is a collaborative initiative between the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, Reading University and Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Every year at Castlewood Wine Festival we aim to raise money for our chosen Charity. We do this, not by shaking buckets and asking for donations but by contributions from our stall holders and as percentage of Castlewood bottles sold on the day.
There is no fee for any of the stalls attending Castlewood Wine Festival, just a donation if everyone feels they’ve had a good day. Over the last 6 years we have raised over £2000 for the Charlie Waller Institute, contributing towards ongoing training and research in evidence based psychological treatment, improving care for people suffering from depression.
