Rita Ora helps sort donations for Grenfell Tower fire victims in her “old neighbourhood”

Celebs offer help to those affected by West London fire

Rita isn't the only celebrity to have offered their support and help either, as fellow Londoner Adele, 29, was spotted at a vigil for those who tragically lost their lives in the blaze.

Rita Ora spent the day helping to sort donations for the Grenfell Tower victims after revealing that she used to play in the block as a child.

In the aftermath of the horror blaze, Rita Ora took to Instagram to express her sadness over the tragedy in her native West London.

The fire swept through the 27-storey tower block in just 15 minutes after a faulty fridge exploded, in what could be one of the worst in British history amid fears nobody on its top three floors survived.

Although Adele hasn't acknowledged her visit on social media, many fans praised the singer as she offered aid and some much-needed support to victims. My prayers are with everybody involved my heart is beating so fast, ' she posted.

The former X Factor judge continued to post videos on Instagram Story throughout the day, including one of her on her way to a help point.

"Just spotted @Adele and Simon Konecki visiting the Grenfell Tower, she was dressed in an abaya".

Adele is reported to have visited the scene of the fire on Wednesday night. "I used to play in that block - I want to do all I can do to help". 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.

'It's very unusual not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family.
