Tom Cox

Tom Cox

Treasurer

Tom is a Baptist Ministry and is currently a Minister-in-Training at Bewdley Baptist Church, and a Ministerial Student at Regent’s Park, Oxford. A mathematician at A-Level, Tom has always had a keen eye for numbers and so when the role of Treasurer was advertised for, it seemed like an ideal way to begin his involvement with ThinkTwice. Aside from study, he is involved in officiating in both tennis and hockey at national level, loves US comedy shows, classic British dramas and wears shorts even in the winter (he’s from up North!)

Tom can be contacted for anything number-related and for information about how to donate to us – treasurer@thinktwiceinfo.org
