GLORIA Stewart said it with chocolate to show her thanks after her granddaughter’s life was saved at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

She delivered a mountain of Easter eggs for patients in gratitude for saving Lilly May Stewart-Smith, who weighed just 1.5lbs when she was born blind 16 weeks early, with a chronic lung disorder.

Now four, Lilly May spent her first 104 days in hospital and had a fourth operation in January to reconstruct her windpipe.

Gloria, aged 63, of Ecclesfield, said: “I’ve got so much to thank the Children’s Hospital for. I wanted to show my continued support for all they have done from the second Lilly May was born, when she made such an entrance to the world!

“As it’s Easter I wanted to treat the children at the hospital, and why donate a few eggs when you can build a mountain from them?”
