Nando’s announce half-price food and drink for NHS workers amid coronavirus outbreak

With the current coronavirus crisis sweeping the UK, food chains and restaurants are trying their best to help out those who are working on the frontline in the NHS.

In a bid to lift the mood of the nation and those who are still having to work to care for patients who have been diagnosed with the virus, and those already ill in hospital Nando's announced a 50 per cent discount to NHS staff.

The chicken chain said it was their "little way of saying thanks for the amazing work the NHS staff are doing" and would be placing the half-price offer on food and drink until 30 April.

They explain via their website that the offer is valid to Ambulance service and NHS staff and for phone & collect orders.

To use this discount, Nando's requests to see a valid photocard ID card (or some form of identification that shows you work for the NHS) with the payment and if ordering for collection or over the phone please show ID when paying at the till.

The discount is available for transactions of any amount, but can only be used once a day. Unfortunately, discounts cannot be applied to Nando’s Delivery or Deliveroo or online Takeaway orders They add as long as the total order amount comes to over £7 after discount, you can still earn a Chilli Point with your Nando’s Card.
