The memorial’s organiser, Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington told the congregation to look to the New Year with “hope” of change, saying he would like to see the word ‘Grenfell’ associated not with “sorrow”, but with “the time we learnt a new and better way – to listen and to love”.
The day after the tragedy, Adele attended the scene to comfort victims and their families, with her husband, Simon Konecki. Days later, she visited a local fire station to meet firefighters for ‘tea and a cuddle’. The singer also treated children from Grenfell to a private cinema screening of ‘Despicable Me 3’ in Queensway, London, on August 3.
