Early life and career
He studied in South London and then returned to West Cornwall to be a development manager for Mustard Seed, a voluntary organisation in Helston, Cornwall which he used to use to demonstrate his strong religious beliefs to local school children, and Chapel Street Methodist Church, Penzance. He later started his own small construction business.
He has developed community projects which enable vulnerable adults to have better lives.
Thomas once again contended for the St Ives seat in the 2017 general election, his campaign including a visit by Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Andrea Leadsom to his Penzance office. He went on to be re-elected with an increased vote share, but a diminished majority of 312.
Thomas is currently the chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours.
