The final edition of the News of the World raised £2.8m for the three charities it decided to support.
A statement from News International, which owned the newspaper, said today that Sunday’s edition sold 3.8m copies and that 74p of the £1 cover price would be divided equally between the three organisations.
The statement also revealed souvenir copies of the final and first editions of the News of the World are on sale together for £2.95.
It said £1.95 of each sale would be spent on postage and packaging and the £1 cover price would be donated to charity.
News International has yet to clarify which charities will benefit.
