More than a dozen women took up the offer 'to be pampered' at the Kingscote Uniting Church.
Nails were manicured and necks were massaged as the women took time out to relax after the torrid last few months.
Dianne Hoffmann and her crew of helpers served elegant and sumptuous food as guests relaxed at tables decorated with flowers and fine china.
Tea pots were regularly refilled as the women talked about their shared experiences and issues. Pastor Louise Davis took the opportunity to chat with most of the women present.
Door prizes won by some guests included an accommodation voucher donated by the Dunn family and three beautiful bouquets donated by Frog and Roses.
As well, every guest was invited to help herself to a table of cosmetics, toiletries and jewellery donated by people from the mainland.
Mandy from Seaside Beauty, Mel from Balance Beauty & Massage and Jane from Mainly Massage provided the beauty and massage services.
Their care and attention to their clients was obvious and they stayed later than planned so that everyone had the opportunity to receive at least one pampering session.
Organisers Denise Branson and Bev Maxwell, were pleased that the Church was able to provide the pampering day to the women whose homes, properties or businesses were damaged by the fires.
"We know that many people in our community are hurting as a result of the fires. This was one way we thought we could help those who've been affected. We'll continue to look for ways that the church can serve the Kangaroo Island community," they said.
