A GRASSROOTS independence campaign is fundraising to continue supporting local Yes groups.

The Dumfries and Galloway Indy Hub has been helping local grassroots groups since 2019, by delivering campaign materials, providing banners for people to display outside of their homes, and supporting stalls and exhibitions across the area.

With just over a week to go until the crowdfunder closes on May 15, the group has so far raised £1250. Organisers have set a target of £2000, which they hope will see them through until the Holyrood elections in May 2026.

One of the group’s organisers, Ian Waugh, said he believed the work of the Indy Hub had contributed to a rise in support for independence locally. He has noticed more saltires appearing in the area, and more people willing to talk to groups who are out campaigning.

Organisers also said grassroots groups were not “afraid to get out and be seen”, and urged campaigners to keep the momentum going as the General Election approaches.
