NewsCelebs offer help to those affected by West London fire

LOCAL girl Rita Ora could not sit idly by as Grenfell Tower - where she used to play as a child - continued to smoulder yesterday.

Adele made an appearance at Grenfell Tower on Wednesday evening, less than 24 hours after a horrific blaze devastated the building, killing and injuring hundreds of residents.

Ora, 26, posted a video of herself among black sacks of donations, including clothes, water and food, at one of the help points in west London.

"The fact that Adele has gone to Grenfell tower and not said a word about it just proves how amazingly honest she is", a commenter wrote.

Taking to Instagram to send her love and prayers, she wrote: "This is my neighbourhood I can't believe this is happening". My heart is beating so fast.

Rita is keen to do whatever she can to help victims.

In the aftermath of the London Grenfell Tower fire, throngs of well-wishers and victims alike have been holding vigil near the fire site.

It is no surprise Ora has been emotionally touched by the tragedy as she grew up in west London on Portobello Road near to the Grenfell Tower block.

Fourmee wrote on Instagram: "Just spotted Adele and Simon Konecki visiting the Grenfell Tower, she was dressed in an abaya. I used to play in that block - I want to do all I can do to help".

On Wednesday night, the singer shared several updates on Instagram Stories during her visit. Respect to both of you.

Adele "was going around and hugging everyone she could to comfort them" according to a fan account, showing up in person instead of tweeting about the incident.
