From May 2016 to October 2018, Tom was a volunteer for one of the Sandwell Libraries Great Barr Library. After getting to know the staff & regular visitors over time, plus offering to do a concert, Tom performed a debut show on 15th September 2016.

Although, actually not volunteering now (due to full-time work commitments and other reasons), Tom still maintains a good relationship and will occasionally do shows and appearances at different Libraries when needed.

Tom has also done several other of the Sandwell Libraries. These include Tipton Library, Wednesbury Library, Stone Cross Library, and Central /West Bromwich Library.

As part of celebrating the news about Sandwell Libraries being the best in the country, Tom was invited to perform several songs at 'The Volunteer & Friends Celebration' at Wednesbury Town Hall.

He also has yearly performed at Blackheath Library for 'The Blackheath Library Variety Show' as part of Blue Monday in January.

Tom was due to sing at Stone Cross Library as part of the 75th Anniversary of VE Day in May 2020. Unfortunately, the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic stopped the show from taking place. However, Tom was asked by Sandwell Libraries to do a live virtual concert on the 8th May. He did over an hour of 1940s wartime hits, watched by many people on the Sandwell Libraries Facebook Page. This hopefully added some happiness to boost viewers' moral on the day.

Tom as well has sung for Sandwell Museums at "The Sandwell Blommin' Lovely Awards" on 12th October 2017 and 'The Sandwell Hidden Treasure Awards' on 10th October 2018 both at Wednesbury Museum & Art Gallery
