Do Little’s Dogs
Doggy Day Care
My name is Lucy Whitehead, I own a doggy daycare based in shaw, Oldham. We have been open for 2 years. I received initial support and funding from The Oldham Enterprise trust. Without that initial guidance and support from OET my business idea may have stayed just that. I owe a lot to them as they didn’t just help me financially but in every other aspect too. They helped me gain key knowledge and skills with the business workshops they run. They really were there every step of the way and I never felt alone with my business venture, even through some of the rough stages they would support me. Even now If I am struggling with something or need anything they are always there to help.

Custom Label Prints Company.
Hi I’m Savanna, the Owner and maker behind the screen at Custom Label Prints Company.
I have found my true passion for creating and providing custom stickers, making packaging look gorgeous and making customers smile when they’ve receive their order! CLPC supports small to big businesses all over the UK providing personalised stationery such as stickers, thank you cards and scratch cards. I wanted to make this side of the business experience less stressful for my customers.
The help and support I received from Oldham Enterprise Trust have been incredible. They have helped me immensely with creating a business plan, cash-flow, provided business courses such as finance, marketing and social media and 1-1 mentor sessions. I really needed an expert’s opinion and advice on the ideas I had. It is really useful hearing another business expert’s opinions and advice as I think it is extremely important to hear feedback and criticisms to help me grow. The grant has also helped me to buy new machinery and equipment for the business.
If you own a business or would like some personalised stationery for an event, then please send us a message, we will be more than happy to help!
