Chelsea star Reece James has warned thieves who broke into his car and stole gifts he was due to donate to charity: “What goes around comes around”.
James, 21, has been working closely with The Felix Project, donating £10,000 to the food charity and helping them serve up meals to a number of hungry children.
But while he was doing so on Wednesday, thieves smashed the England right-back’s car window and broke into the vehicle to steal presents he was due to donate to the project later in the day.
James wrote on Instagram: “Another rewarding experience with the Felix Project today serving meals to the younger generation.
“Hopefully we spread some joy ahead of a challenging Christmas period.
“Unfortunately, I was met with huge disappointment when returning to my car.
“During the event, someone felt the need to break in and steal gifts that I was due to go and donate later in the day.
“What goes around comes around”.
James has become an integral member of Frank Lampard’s Chelsea squad since returning from a loan spell at Wigan to make his debut last season.
He also made his England debut back in October and has earned another three caps since.
Now the Lambeth-born star is determined to give back to society and help transform people’s lives.
James recently told the Evening Standard: “When I grew up, I was around a few of my friends who didn’t have the privilege of having food all the time.
