The Nandos society was formed last September by Farhan Ahmed and his fiancé Yasmeen Ali in an attempt to change what societies at university are all about. This chicken-lovin’ power couple, along with their committee, are all about bringing people together, whether you’re a tame lemon and herb kinda guy or you’re a dangerous extra hot kinda gal. In an interview with The Print Farhan said:
“We all love Nandos because of the secrets behind the chicken and sauce, but most importantly it opens up a whole different world of culture, which has been an important part of bringing people together.”
Nandos society has been busy planning their launch in time for the re-freshers fair at the beginning of semester 2. As a result they have a lot to offer in the upcoming term. From Nandos appreciation courses, Easter egg hunts, monthly Nandos dinners and Nandos food challenges, the society is shaping up to be exactly the kind of place to meet some new people. Between chicken and chums, Nandos societies will be the perfect society to find some light relief while you’re hacking through those exams and assignments. The Nandos president and his committee are committed to the idea of a personal society, with friendship and sharing at the heart of everything they do. Talking with Nandos soc it’s clear that they have a drive for bringing people together:
“I’ve been a member of three different societies and have yet to receive a personal email or call for an upcoming event. Our members will be integrated into our society as if they are our family.”
So whether your order is mushroom and halloumi medium spiced wrap (my personal fav) or a lemon and herb half chicken, consider checking out what the Nandos society has to offer this term.
Membership is only £3 for the academic year, which is not bad at all for adding this kind of peri peri spice into your life (sorry).
