It is also known to many for its year round snow-topped summit. If anyone (Millets, Blacks etc – nudge nudge), hae spare socks and gloves they can donate, they will be most appreciated. Below is an image of what it will be like:

… now will you donate some money? We’re not going on a holiday you know
