In a heartwarming gesture, Portuguese Chicken Chain, Nando’s, is encouraging people to have a good old catch up with older friends and loved ones by offering customers who dine with someone over 65 up to 50% off their bill. N’aww.
For most of us, the pandemic has meant that we’ve not had the opportunity to enjoy the company of our older relatives and friends for fear of putting them at risk, but now restrictions are easing and the vaccine rollout is well underway, this is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with those who matter most.
The ‘NanGo’s’ offer will run from 7th-9th June 2021 and all you need to do is sign up online to get a code.
The over-65 diner will also need to show some ID to validate their age.

A Nando’s spokesperson said, “No more will you have to feast of Grandma’s Brussel sprouts (you’re welcome!), as after a tough year with limited contact between the elderly and their younger counterparts, Nando’s is bringing the generations back together, with family and friends finally being able to reunite around a restaurant table once again.”
“In England, there are 1.4m chronically lonely older people, and many more across the rest of the UK, making this a major issue that is now widely recognised in society today.”
“COVID shielding has only made the prospect of isolation more overwhelming over the past year, but with the vaccine roll-out in full steam, we’re officially on the up!”
“The NanGo’s free campaign comes as a result of the loosening of lockdown measures across the UK, and aims to get you back to a life full of flavour – helping to bridge the gap between older people, most affected by the effects of 2020, and their younger counterparts.”
As part of its generous campaign, the chicken chain will also be collecting donations for City Harvest and the Xcess Network to help feed vulnerable elderly people across the country.
