A hundred wheelchair users soaked up the charm of Pulau Ubin yesterday in an event to show how no part of Singapore - including its islands - should be inaccessible to anyone.

Taking part in Wheels@Ubin were beneficiaries of the Asian Women's Welfare Association, the Hand-Cycling Association of Singapore and the Society for the Physically Disabled.

The participants were ferried to the island by the Republic of Singapore Navy. Land transport for the wheelchair users was provided by SMRT Taxis.
