The England international was shocked to find that his vehicle had been hacked after visiting a school in London
Chelsea star Reece James took to social media to report the vandals who stole the charity gifts from her car, warning those responsible “what’s going on comes out”.
For the past 18 months, James has partnered with London-based charity “The Felix Project,” an organization dedicated to delivering meals to disadvantaged groups and schools across the city.
England has donated a total of £ 10,000 of its own money to the charity, which has been busier than ever since the coronavirus outbreak in March.
She also helped deliver meals during her free time, with Normand Croft Community School in Hammersmith one of her final stops on a day of giving to the Project.
James returned to his vehicle after leaving gifts and food to find that the thieves had broken his car window and taken a PlayStation 5 and a jacket from the back seat which he also intended to donate.
The 21-year-old revealed the full extent of the damage done to his car by posting a photo Instagram with the following message: “Another rewarding experience with the Felix Project today serving meals to the younger generation.
“Hopefully we will spread some joy ahead of a busy Christmas season.
“Unfortunately, I was met with great disappointment when I got back to my car.
“During the event, someone felt the need to break in and steal the gifts that I had to go and donate during the day.”
James added: “What goes around comes around.”
The talented young full-back will now have to shake off the shock of the incident and refocus on his duties at Chelsea ahead of a massive Premier League clash against West Ham on Monday.
The Blues have slipped to sixth in the Premier League standings following consecutive defeats to Everton and Wolves, but are still only six points behind leaders Liverpool, who won the title last season.
James has been an outstanding player for Frank Lampard’s side during this period, contributing one goal and two assists in 12 top-flight appearances, and will likely retain his place in the starting lineup for next week’s London derby.
