A DOG Deli owner has won a national award for her innovative thinking.

Lisa Godling, 38, who sells healthy dog snacks at her business Daisy's Dog Deli won a national start-up competition last Wednesday.

The former chef, of Lyndon Avenue, Blackfen was handed her prize by top entrepreneur Tim Campbell who was the first to be hired by Sir Alan Sugar in the hit TV series The Apprentice.

Miss Godling, who beat 140 other business owners in the Make Your Mark competition, said: "It started when my dog developed a wheat allergy and I found that all the biscuits left on the market were full of additives.

"I made my own without the additives and started selling them to neighbours, and it grew from there."

As part of the competition prize, Miss Godling received six months free trading at The Mall, Bexleyheath, a business mentor from RBS, and a place at the prestigious Oxford Keble College Retail Summer School.
