Adele has been one of the most high-profile supporters of the people caught up in the Grenfell fire disaster. From visiting the site of the tower to delivering cake to hero firefighters, the award-winning singer has pledged to stand by those caught up in the disaster – insisting that she is “not leaving them” because she’s “involved now”.
And, for all those sceptics who accused the star of making ‘empty promises’, Adele has continued to make good on her word, even organising a special cinema screening of Despicable Me 3 for the children affected by the tragedy.
The singer, who recently cancelled the final dates of her world tour, booked out Whiteley’s cinema in Queensway, west London and joined the children for an afternoon of animated fun.
And Twitter has since been flooded with messages of gratitude from the Grenfell community.
Speaking to The Sun about Adele’s generosity, someone close to the star explained: “Adele sees her work in the community as a full-time priority now her touring days are over for the foreseeable future.
