Adele, Rita Ora And Lily Allen Were On Site To Help Families Affected By The Grenfell Tower Fire Last Night
They were pictured helping the locals sort through donated supplies.
Since Tuesday night’s fatal fire at the Grenfell Tower apartment block in London, locals and celebrities alike have been doing whatever they can to help the families who’ve lost their homes.
Many have been gathering at sports centres and churches in the area to donate supplies, with everything from food, clothes and bedding required.
Adele was one such person to dedicate her time to the victims last night. She and her husband, Simon Konecki, attended a vigil near where the fire happened, and she appeared emotional while talking to those affected.
Fans of the singer have been commending her online for not boasting about doing a good deed online, saying, “The fact that Adele has just turned up at Grenfell tower without saying a word to help people proves just how utterly sincere she is.”

Rita Ora also made an effort to gather supplies for the victims last night, and was photographed sorting through clothes and toiletries with the locals.
The 25-year-old worked tirelessly, and was passionate about making a difference because she grew up in the neighbourhood. Taking to Instagram, the Voice judge said, “This is my neighbourhood, I can’t believe this is happening. My prayers are with everybody involved – my heart is beating so fast. I used to play in that block – I want to do all I can do to help.”

But with over a hundred families displaced, they need more than just food and clothes. All of those people will need to be re-homed, and singer Lily Allen is one of the people offering to help people find shelter.
Taking to Twitter, she said, “If anyone need a bed or a lift, or tea tweet me”, while celebrity chef Jamie Oliver offered to shelter people in his nearby restaurant.
If anyone need a bed or a lift, or tea tweet me and I'll follow back. #NorthKensington
