The Sun newspaper is being given away today to coincide with the launch of the National Lottery's new mid-week draw.The paper has teamed up with lottery operators Camelot to offer the "Winsday bonus".

Today's edition also features an eight-page supplement which lists the charitable achievements that have been funded by money raised by the National Lottery to date. It is the first time the Sun has been given away, although its sister paper, the Times, was free for a day in August 1995 as part of a promotion by the computer firm Microsoft.
