David said: “I’m delighted to have won the Driver of the Year award. Delivering pizza can sometimes be a challenge, especially in harsh weather conditions like snow and ice! But handing over delicious pizzas to the people of Preston is rewarding and I love seeing the smile on people faces when they open their door to me.”

His manager, Emran Patel, picked up manager of the year.
