Adele Had Tea and Cake With Firefighters Who Responded to London Tower Fire

By
Adele paid a surprise visit to the Chelsea Fire Station in London, England.
The "Hello" singer showed up with snacks for the firefighters who tackled the tragic Grenfell Tower blaze last week. "Adele enjoyed a cup of tea with Chelsea firefighters yesterday and thanked them for their work," the London Fire Brigade tweeted along with a slew of photos of Adele posing with the firefighters on Monday. "We are so humbled by everyone's support."
"She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us. So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: ‘Hi, I’m Adele’. Everyone was so shocked," station manager Ben King recalled in a Facebook post. "She came in, came up to the mess and had a cup of tea with the watch and then she joined us for the minute’s silence."
The London Fire Brigade used Adele's widely publicized visit to garner some support for the Firefighter's Charity, which works to help "firefighters who are in injured, ill or in need of psychological support to come to terms with the life and death situations they face on a daily basis."
Adele's visit to the fire station comes after she and husband Simon Konecki went to the Grenfell Tower in London on Wednesday night to offer hugs and support to those affected by the devastating fire that engulfed the 24-story apartment building, where 79 people are presumed dead or missing.
In addition to the 29-year-old singer's surprise visits, other celebrities including chef Jamie Oliver, singer Lily Allen, and actor Tom Hardy -- who started a crowdfunding page to raise money for victims -- have expressed their support and sympathies following the fire. Simon Cowell is also working to release a cover of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" on Wednesday, with proceeds going to the victims of the fire and their families.
