Kicking Cancer in a Kilt

He is the man from Castlereagh in a kilt with a message. And there is nothing more that David Attrill likes – besides the breeze of course – than when people ask him why he’s chosen to wear a kilt.

Kilted to Kick Cancer is where people wear kilts, so when people ask why we are wearing it, we are able to bring up the topic of prostate cancer,” he said. It’s a way of creating awareness for prostate cancer.” According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, it is estimated that 3,500 males will die from prostate cancer this year alone.
