High street piri piri chicken chain Nando’s is offering 50% off to diners aged 65 and over when they are accompanied by their younger relatives. That’s right, it’s time to bring your nan to Nando’s.
In a bid to celebrate the easing of lockdown restrictions and the reuniting of families with their older relatives, Nando’s has launched the #NanGo’s campaign. The limited-time offer pledges to give over-65s dining in the restaurant 50% off their food between 7-9 June when accompanied by their younger relatives.
That means that elderly diners can tuck into classic Nando’s dishes, such as their chicken wraps and burgers, for half price. Nans (granddads also welcome) can tailor the spice and heat of their chicken to their own preferences, while also indulging in the restaurant’s famously bottomless fizzy drinks, plus perhaps a trip to the frozen yoghurt machine afterwards.
To help spread the word about the campaign, the ‘cheeky’ chicken restaurant has enlisted the help of internet sensation, Grime Gran. 80-year-old Margie Keefe has gained internet fame for her hilarious YouTube videos, in which she has interviewed famous grime artists such as Skepta and Lethal Bizzle, but now she is encouraging grandparents across the country to reunite with their younger relatives.
However, lying behind the puns and humour of this campaign is a serious message. Studies show that in England alone, there are 1.4 million chronically lonely older people, a situation which has only been exacerbated by the multiple lockdowns enforced due to the Coronavirus pandemic. So if you grandparents are chicken lovers, why not treat them to a discounted Nando’s in June?
