From May 2016 Tom has done voluntary work 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, plans were put forward for a show to be held there on 15th September 2016. The concert, 'The Man & His Music' was successful and well attended with positive feedback both from staff and the audience!!! Tom has since performed there regularly.

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

Plus, as part of celebrating the recent news about Sandwell Libraries being the best in the country, Tom (being a volunteer himself) was invited to perform several songs at 'The Volunteer & Friends Celebration' at Wednesbury Town Hall.

Tom has also appeared once at Great Bridge Library at ‘The Black Country Variety Show’ and also recently at Blackheath Library for 'The Blackheath Library Variety Show' as part of Blue Monday.


Tom was also approached by Sandwell Museums to perform several songs at an art competition ceremony called "The Sandwell Blommin' Lovely Awards" on 12th October 2017 at Wednesbury Museum & Art Gallery. The Mayor of Sandwell 2017/18, Councillor Ahmadul Haque M.B.E. attended, along with several of the competition candidates and other guests. Tom, then returned to sing at 'The Sandwell Hidden Treasure Awards', the next year on 10th October 2018, attended by the Mayor of Sandwell 2018/19, Councillor Joy Edis.
